Fodor's Expert Review Inn on the Hill

225 N. State St., Salt Lake City, Utah, 84103, USA Fodor's Choice

Owned and restored by former Salt Lake Tribune publisher Philip McCarthey, this spectacular turn-of-the-20th-century Renaissance Revival mansion makes a striking impression with its red-rock exterior and princely setting on the lower slopes of tony Capitol Hill. The interior has stained-glass windows, pocket doors, and an eye-catching turquoise fireplace. All of the cushy rooms in this 11,000-square-foot inn are unique, and each is named for a Utah landmark, and rates include an outstanding breakfast.
